Is there any reference material on figuring or calculating wheel train counts for long running clocks (I'm looking at 1 year, and not a 400 day type clock ;)) using a weight, no springs or fusee. I'm not much of a math whiz, but would like to learn some of this.

And, BTW, how are train counts figured out to where the time, chime, and strike weights all descend evenly, give or take a little (a great mystery to me).

Thanks!.................gary
